As soon as he reaches sub-continent, Team Indian Captain Virat Kohli begins his hunt in the ground. Kohli powered India notch seven-wicket victory and Kohli’s fifty stamps India's authority in a small chase against the Proteas.
Thereby, captain Virat Kohli has become the highest run-scorer in T20I cricket, achieving the feat in the second T20I against South Africa on Wednesday. Following his 72*(52), the 30-year-old has now scored 2,441 runs in T20I cricket, seven more than Rohit Sharma. Further, Kohli is currently the only batsman in international cricket to have 50-plus average in all three formats.
Team India restricted South Africa to 149 at high-scoring Mohali. Proteas’ skipper Decock impressed with a half-century and Bavuma falls for 49 but none of their batsmen rose to the occasion as India keep the lid on South Africa. India loses two quick wickets but Kohli remains steady. Sublime Kohli, Dhawan switched gears when needed as India cruises to victory.
